Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1actually..hmm I guess you could use AA, nvm but SSS works too

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1from that page "SSS Similarity Theorem This theorem states that if the sides of two triangles are in proportion, then the triangles are similar."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no jim, all 3 pairs of sides need to form a proportion for SSS to work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1SSS would have been my first choice....but AA works as well (you need to do a bit of work, not much though)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1actually you just need 2 pairs and SSS works

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1all 3 pairs of sides need to have same ratio, jim. only 2 side ratios matching wont do for SSS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm this page is odd, they use SSS first, then SAS nvm, i guess it's not accurate go for AA
